She has a flaxen mane. That's why its "white" and a whole lot lighter then the rest of her body.

Sabino likes crazy socks and symmetrical blazes. Splash likes weird blazes and straight socks. Frame likes faces but hates legs. (In a nutshell)

I thought sabino was an overo with ticking- splash was high whites bald face- and frame overo (lwo) was white stretching horizontally, and rarely crossin the back- tobiano was known for rounded color patches and vertical white, known for coming up the hindquarters and crossing the back? Basics- I've seen frame overo horses that were solid, and that had 3 socks, etcetra..

Wouldnt flaxen be white or very light? Her mane is red like her body and the top is lighter red middle is white and bottom is lightest shade of red- her tail is a very dark red with white hairs on the outsides and darkest shades of red in the middle.

If her mane was lighter id say she was a chestnut- right?

Where are NDappy and Chillaa at when you need them? Taking a break from their duties as on call colour experts?
Not that the rest of you are not knowledgeable but if those two chime in I don't read the whole thread.
Does rabicano skip a generation? I don't think this mare is a rabicano and agree she is a sorrel with white. Shalom

she is still a chestnut, but her mane is flaxen. Which means she carries the gene that lightens a mane and tail. Even though her tail may be the same color as her body. Flaxen ddoesn't mean "white" like your thinking, like a Palomino's mane. It can range in shades from super light, to just a shade lighter then the body, and it can have different shade in it as well.

My very dark BA Brown has a fair amount of white ticking and is absolutely the farthest thing from a roan as possible. So it is not just common in red horses! Common in horses! :)

Sorrel and chestnut are both red. Shade makes no difference in that.

All red horses have some amount of white ticking throughout their bodies.

To be roan a horse MUST have a roan parent. Just like grey it doesn't hide or skip generations.

NDappy to the rescue.
Could it be a form of rabicano and does that skip a generation? Shalom

Without seeing the horse in question, I really wouldn't hazard a guess. I don't believe that rabicano skips generations, but it can be very minimal.
